I have been getting more into flat picking acoustic lately. As a result I am thinking of buying a new acoustic. What are some models/ brands I should look at. It has been a long time since I last looked. I always liked Larrivee as a good guitar at a great price. Any other ideas? It would primarily be a strummer/flat picker so prob a dread? I tried a Guild D40 traditional the other day. Boomy as all get out with bass to hang your hat on. Kinda interesting. Many will say that you cannot go wrong with a Martin and there is some truth in that.l I currently play an old Breedlove Premier dread that I will prob sell. But what else is out there.
